Are you a young scientist with a background in the life sciences or a related research field and do you have a creative and inquisitive mind? Do you like to think outside-the-box? Do you want to meet new people from other disciplines, including mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering? If yes, apply for the fourth ‘Life Sciences with Industry’ Lorentz workshop.
Echoing the successful workshops in 2013, 2014 and 2015, the Research School BioSB and STW join forces to organise this fourth ‘Life Sciences with Industry’ workshop. Three scientifically challenging R&D problems, formulated by three Dutch life sciences companies, will be tackled by around 20 young researchers. They are expected to come up with creative solutions to challenging, practical and real-life problems. Participants will make new contacts and have opportunities to develop future job perspectives as the result of the workshop. During the workshop, each R&D problem will be tackled by a group of about 5 – 6 participants. On the last day of the workshop all groups will present and plenary discuss the solution to their challenge together with the industrial partners.
Participants are PhD students and postdocs. They will be selected based on their scientific background and motivation to participate in this workshop.
